stroke

Avatar n tn My mother, a healthy 61-year old, was admitted to ER after a mild stroke at her water aerobics class. Her condition deteriorated quickly in the ER as the stroke was hemmhoragic. It took hours to flush the Coumadin she had been taking for a thrombosis 2 years earlier.
Avatar f tn hi, my grandmother just had a mild a stroke, she is 75 years old and had a bypass operation about 15 to18 years ago. her condition worsens every single day, like first she only has weakness of her left arm muscles, but now, just after 2 weeks she cannot stand already, and have been complaining pains in different parts of the body....what i know about mild stroke is that it has a very good prognosis, then why is it that with the case of my grandmother, it seems to be progressing?
Avatar f tn That time her bllod sugar was 224.That time they gave her insuline as well. Is it stroke or any ather condition? Before that she was fine walks around no problem climbing staircase. Is any body know what is this?
Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago I had a mild stroke that did not affect any of my gross motor skills. I lost some functionality in my left hand, but now apparently have full use of the hand, but numbness at the end of 1 finger. 90% of the functionality of the muscles on the left side of my face has been restored. I speak very clearly and can modulate my tone effectively as long as I am not tire. Excellent recovery except for dealing with fatigue.
Avatar f tn my uncle had a stroke with mild paralytic symptoms .he was rushed to the hospital and admitted in icu .the next day he had hemorrhage due to the selling which ruotured the artery.immediately he was operated.it has been almost a week he is on ventillator .his skull is removed due to swelling in some part of brain.
Avatar m tn As a result less blood is pumped out with each stroke, and when serious it will cause heart failure. Mild concentric LVH may be a normal condition for you and not very significant if asymptomatic and no other associated medical concerns.
Avatar n tn And what is hard about stroke is that each situation can have a totally different outcome. My aunt had a stroke that was quite debilitating. She was on life support. Then began to recover a bit so her prognosis improved. She was moved to a rehab facility. But she was there for over six months. She returned home (had been out of town when this happened) and the recovery was slow. Working with a physical therapist on a regular basis.
Avatar f tn My dad has recently (within the last week) had a mild stroke. He is only 48 and reasonably healthy so it came has a huge shock. The stroke was a clot to the left side of his brain. His memory has not been affected and his doctors are very impressed with the progress of his recovery in the short time since the stroke. They believe after all of his rehabilitation he should be back to 100% independance. The outlook is good in that respect even though at the moment its all still very saddening.
Avatar n tn Re Recovery Time, Thank you for posting this. My husband had a "mild" stroke on Dec 18, and we are still trying to figure out how to process all the changes that have occurred in our lives. We're not even sure what "mild" means for he had a stroke that left his entire left side affected (with little to no sensation), but his speech, mobility and brain functions seem relatively unimpaired.
Avatar n tn I have a 4 year daughter that has suffered a stroke and has left hemiparesis and epilepsy. She also has mild dysphagia. I have a exp working with stroke and TBI pts and have had training in a number of therapies. IMO, the absoulte best and most effective treatment out there for stroke pts is constraint induced movement therapy. I have been doing this with my daughter and she is making tremendous strides. CI is also used for aphasia and would think it may be possible to apply it to dysphagia.

Avatar m tn I was found to have a murmur at age 20 in a routine check-up and it had been mild until age 35 -- all exams alos called my valve tricuspid. To my surprise, the aortic regurgitation became 2+ - 3+ on an echocardiogram 3 weeks ago and my valve has sense been called bicuspid. Can valves become bicuspid? My cardiologist is certain that I shall need aortic valve replacement but either did not know or did not want to answer my question on long-term prognosis.
Avatar n tn I am a 38 year old female who suffered a mild stroke 3 weeks ago. I was approx 12 weeks pregnant at the time. I have not used birth control pills for almost 10 years. The doctors say it was a blod clot in the thalmus (sp?) region. My deficits are a blind spot in the left side of both eyes and a numb left arm. The doctors cannot tell me what brought on the stroke, although they say the pregnancy may have caused a hypercoaguble state.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 70 years old and had a mild CVA of the thalamus on 6/2/2008. Only symtoms were loss of feeling on left side. All other faculties are good. Still have much tingling all over left side and numbness in some areas. Fine motor skills of left hand are bad. Gross motor skills and strength are good. Pain receptors are working for the most part. Sensory receptors are not functioning very well.
Avatar m tn My Dad has been diagnosed with having delirium after a stroke. He is continuously restless and agitated, he is always pulling at the bedclothes or taking off his own clothes. Is there any treatment for delirium and is it reversible?
Avatar n tn My 55 yr old mother had a "massive" hemorrhagic stroke Feb. 18/05. The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down.
Avatar f tn I had a CT scan done. The doctor told me I was showing signs of mild emphysema. Everything I find on the Internet is negative and scary. I wasn't sure what this meant and prognosis.
Avatar n tn are folks able to survive this and live for a long time afterwards? how long?). While I know that biopsies aren't supposed to spread cancer cells, her biopsy caused a very large hematoma which lasted for 10 days until the mastectormy. I am hoping that (maybe) the intramammary node was positive for cancer because it picked up cells from the hematoma as a result of the biopsy and that the mastectomy effectively got rid of all cancer. (her bone scan and CT scan came back clean).
Avatar f tn My husband just had a mild stroke 4 days ago. He is sleeping a lot. Should I keep waking him up or does his body need the sleep time to heal??
Avatar n tn Hi I'm terribly upset. My dad has just had a stroke. He's 72 and is currently in hospital virtually asleep full time. We know that it is caused by a blood clot stemming from Atrial Fibrillation and it has affected his left side (No vision, left arm and leg) The doctor has painted a very bleak picture which was very devastating and right now at this moment it just seems that there is no hope. Can anyone re-assure me that if he survives there is some hope for quality of life.
Avatar n tn He has been retired since 1998 (first stroke - very mild) and then had a bigger stroke in 2002. He lost feeling in his left side. He has had trouble with memory loss but since November it has gotten worse. I have been his "caregiver" since i married him. He used to help out more but since his last stroke has been doing less. I have had to learn more about how he manages his diabetes and I have had to start directing him a bit.
Avatar n tn 46 yr old healthy female. 4-21-97 Had frontal right brain mild stroke due to dissecting carotid aneurysm. From day one all questions and symptoms have been responded to by doctor with "that shouldn't be happening" or "we don't know anything...there's nothing we can do." Head feels weird. can't tolerate excitement, esp. extreme visual or audio stimulation. Slight left side weakness. Always fatigued. Most abilities recovered except intellectual functions.

Avatar n tn abnormality in right middle cerebral artery, bilateral stenosis of superior cerebellar arteries, marked tortuosity of cervical carotid arteries, and mild tortuosity of the upper vertebral arteries. They could not rule out fibromuscular dysplasia. They also discovered a left hydronephrosis consistent with uretopelvic junction obstruction. Removal of kidney is scheduled 6-12 months after patient is stabilized and Coumadin can safely be discontinued.
Avatar n tn Stroke in 8 yr. old son posted by Sandy on August 09, 1998 at 01:57:02: I'll try to keep this as short as possible. After a concussion/whiplash injury in Feb., my son was diagnosed with a left vertebral artery dissection with left cerebellar and thalamic infarcts. Also occlusion of the basilar artery.
Avatar n tn what is the prognosis of the right sided tremor. Based on the onset of the tremor which was after the stroke and the location of the stroke involving the left cerebellar and thalamic regions. I believe this is the cause of the tremor and only time will tell if it will disappear or get better. Unfortunately, in my experience this will persist to a varying degree. Medication may help. 2. what is the cause of the other artery abnormalities.
Avatar n tn the tremor which was after the stroke and the location of the stroke : involving the left cerebellar and thalamic regions.
